Key Skincare Concept for ✨ᴀᴄɴᴇ✨:

🤔 Know that you should clear your acne before pursuing any other skincare goals (hydration, brightening, rejuvenation) because ongoing pimples will prevent you from achieving those goals 🤔



✨ To fight your acne without damaging your skin barrier

Check out: Simply Clean or Gentle Cleanser



✨ To protect your skin barrier and help you tolerate anti-acne ingredients that work (but are usually irritating)

Check out: Phyto A+ Brightening Treatment



✨ SPF30+ helps prevent worsening post-acne discolouration, but make sure you choose one that doesn't trigger breakouts!

Check out: EltaMD UV Clear Tinted or Non-Tinted



✨ These have much more power to clear your acne. See a Dermatologist in less than one week on! Book now
